These 71 cm (28 inch) Miflex XT-Tech Low Pressure (LP) Regulator hoses with standard size 3/8-inch UNF male threads are just great for using to attach your 2nd stage regulator to your 1st stage regulator
The XT-Tech series of scuba diving medium pressure flexible regulator hoses has been developed with the main purpose to offer technical divers additional safety with Kevlar reinforcement in the inner braiding, combined with a smooth outer PU layer.
This new regulator hose configuration from Miflex, as it is not positively bouyant, is particularly appreciated because of less abrasion around the neck, allowing the hose to stay in place.
The Miflex XT-Tech Regulator hoses offer the same characteristics of a traditional rubber hose with the plus of being lighter in weight.
The Miflex XT-Tech regulator hose has a polyether based PU thermoplastic inliner with an inner Polyester and Kevlar braiding and an outer smooth layer of thermoplastic. The fittings and the sleeves are made of sea water resistant electroless nickel plated brass.

Regulator Hose Fittings
These Miflex XT-Tech low pressure regulator hoses have a 3/8-inch Male UNF thread at the end that screws into a first stage LP port, and a 9/16-inch Female UNF connector at the end that screws on to the second stage regulator.
Some 1st stage regulators have 1/2" low pressure ports. You'll need a 1/2" to 3/8" low pressure adaptor to use a Miflex XT-Tech regulator hose on those 1st stage regulators.
Some 2nd stage regulators don't use a 9/16" connection. You'll need a 9/16" male to whatever female low pressure adaptor to use a Miflex XT-Tech regulator hose on those 2nd stage regulators.
